Praise for the First Edition of What Does It Mean to Be White?:
«Rarely will one find an analysis of whiteness (and the problems associated with it) that is as comprehensive as this one. From incisive and wide-ranging critiques of how white folks deflect, deny, and evade the topic of racism, and the implications of our own racial identity and position, to an absolutely on-point interrogation of how racism and whiteness influence white teachers-in-training, and thus, the larger educational process, Robin DiAngelo demonstrates the kind of clarity of thought so needed on this important subject.» (Tim Wise, Author of White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son and Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority)
About the Author
Robin DiAngelo received her PhD at the University of Washington, where she was twice honored with the Student’s Choice Award for Educator of the Year. Her concept of white fragility has influenced the national discourse on race. She has published widely in both mainstream and academic venues.

Have recommended this book to a number of friends who claim multi-cultural openness and they are humbled by what they learn from this book.
It is no exaggeration that if every white person read this text, the world would be an unfathlmably better place (assuming we all digest her words and move towards action after finishing the book). Only negative is I wish she would have cited the direct thoughts of more people of color instead of her own thoughts, but it’s safe to guess that her own ideology was formed by directly following POC.
Foundational, seminal, and necessary reading.
